EA Mobile has released Mass Effect Galaxy on the Apple App Store, allowing iDevice users to save the galaxy in an all-new story created exclusively for the iPhone/iPod Touch.

Taking control of Jacob Taylor, a combat power-house, only you can foil a plot to knock humanity off the galactic stage. Alien terrorists are preparing to unleash a devastating biological assault, and it's down to you to stop them.

Mass Effect fans might also be interested to learn that two of the main characters in Mass Effect Galaxy will also appear in the upcoming Mass Effect 2 for Xbox 360 and PC.

Mass Effect Galaxy is out now priced £2.99.
